Why I Recommend Bamboo For Layering

Hey babes!

It’s absolutely no secret that I have a favourite line of clothing, both personally and as your stylist. I have been carrying the Bamboo Collection since the beginning of Dakota Mae (2008). I wanted a chance to get more detailed as to why I feel they are the best choice for layering and building your wardrobe in a world full of endless and fashionable options!

One Size Fit’s All. Seriously! I wouldn’t believe it either if I haven’t seen it with my own eyes. I see countless uniquely beautiful bodies of all shapes and sizes. From pre-teens to expecting Mama’s (who will find the High Waist the most beneficial for that sweet bump) and everyone in between. Magical, if you ask me!

Breathable & Insulating. Bamboo fabric lets your body breath! Its antibacterial properties keep you smelling and feeling fresh. It helps to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. No matter what the season it always helps to regulate body temperature (amazing for any gal experiencing hot flashes)

“It’s the most breathable material. I can definitely feel the difference when I am wearing bamboo. I love the bamboo long sleeve scoop for underneath everything. I get the arm coverage I need without the feeling of extra layers”

Sweat Absorbent & UV Protective. Bamboo literally pulls moisture from your skin (called moisture wicking) absorbing sweat keeping you dry. It also protects you from harmful UV rays completely naturally.

Softest & Best Fabric for you AND our planet it’s an actual win, win! It’s incredibly soft and stretches only where you need it to and not where you don’t. No more uncomfortable tight waistband or the stretched out loose waistband. Also say goodbye to the over worn droopy material. It’s also hypoallergenic and much more sustainable than even cotton because it is a self-regenerating plant that continues to grow right from it’s own roots!


Bamboo Leggings: High vs Regular Waist

Leggings have become a common staple in the closet of almost every Woman. They’re versatile, comfortable and can complete both a dressed up look or a casual weekend look. Our bamboo leggings are one size fits all, which can be intimidating, but it’s been over a decade since I have been selling these and they really do fit everyone. From pre-teens to plus size and even expecting Mama’s! I know you’ll love them but first you need to decide which waist height will work best for you.


  • you’re short waisted
  • you prefer a lower rise
  • youwant the top of the waist under or at your belly button


  • you’re long waisted
  • you like your belly tucked in
  • you like the feel of fabric gently hugging your torso

Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!

Love always,

Dakota Mae.
